The third book in the New
Frontiers trilogy wasn’t as enjoyable as the first two. The twists and turns of
the ending were the most disappointing. Alexander and Caty are to be passengers
on a colony ship that would take them to settle a new planet in the Proxima
Centauri system. We’re introduced to another passenger named Benjamin and his
mother. We also see some of the story through the eyes of the crew of the ship.
Before all the 70,000 passengers boarded, the ship is attacked. It’s from this
point that the story spins through many strange happenings. I kept reading
because I wanted to know what happened to the characters, but it was hard at
the end to feel any hope for the characters. This series appears to be a kind of prequel to
another series. I’m no longer sure I want to read on, even though I’ve enjoyed
all of the other books I’ve read by the author.
